~ Save the Bees BOM #5 ~ 2 GIVEAWAYS! ~

***Giveaway Closed***
This month it's all about finishing your Save the Bee's BOM.  After watching so many creative quilters come up with some amazing block ideas, I can't wait to see how everyone will finish their quilts.   Watching these inspiring quilters post their creations in the Facebook group Sew Quilty Friends is one of my favorite things to at the end of my day. That's what I love about Jacquelynne's yearly BOM, she encourages everyone to be creative. Follow her pattern exactly or by all means dress it up however you like, there's no rules!   Every month a block is published with several different options, a pieced or applique quilt block, an embroidery block or a plain block using our favorite fabric.  You're really getting several quilts with one BOM.   Don't forget to visit Jacquelynne's blog today to see her creative ideas for finishing up the BOM.


This year instead of making a large quilt my blocks each month were turned into mini quilts that will added to the mini quilt wall in my studio or new office.  With each block I tried to think outside the box by adding unique little touches to make them my own.  Block 1 I stuck exactly to the pattern as written but I did tons of fussy cutting to give the block a whimsy feel.


Block 2 was also made exactly as written.  Normally when I do applique I like for my thread to blend into a project.  With this block I decide go a little thread crazy and use a thread that was a few shades darker.  This makes the applique really pop out off the quilt. 


Block 3....Well.......I just jumped off the rails and did my own thing when I stumble across a cute panel print quite by accident.  The colors blended well with the previous blocks and it looks like I spent hours paper piecing hexies.  


Block 4......Since I jumped way off track last month, why not just get a little crazy, go wild and have fun designing my Baby Buzzy.   Baby Buzzy is FREE for you to use in your quilt.  You can find the templates and a description on how I made my Baby Buzzy mini quilt by clicking here.  Or you can download the templates in my Craftsy shop.


During this BOM I also designed a cute little pin cushion.  The pattern is FREE in my Craftsy shop.  You can read more about the pin cushion here.

  4. I really like your little bee skep pincushion! It really complements the mini quilts that you made. I don't recall if I have entered any of the previous drawings from your blog, but I don't think I did. At least, I hadn't liked or followed your FB page before, but now I have.

  6. Didn't enter previously. I love the “Save the Bees” BOM and for me it was perfect timing! I work with a large nonprofit organization that literally did “save the bees” by raising funds to get 7 shipments of sugar syrup to Florida for the starving bees from Hurricane Michael to keep them sustained while natural bee forage material could regrow. Am working on a smaller version of this for the office!
